Google Reader & Esquire is my page of shared blog entries. I read blogs all day, so that’s the stuff I deem worthy of sharing with other people.

I’m always interested in new stuff to read, so post your shared page or your favorite blog links in the comments here.

Here’s our test video with the green screen. It’s very spotty since the lighting in the garage is dim:

And here’s my favorite video of theirs so far (not green screened):
